Please be aware flowers dry differently depending on the type, timing, etc. Colors may shift and blooms may shrink. I do my VERY BEST to make sure your piece is as lovely as possible, but there are some variables through the process that are out of my control. I have never had a problem, but need to make sure we understand each other.
All of my pieces are handmade, by me and so they will not look like they have been manufactured by machine. There will be small bubbles – and these can cause occasionally teeny pits on the side surfaces. Every piece I make is one of a kind and so I consider small imperfections to be part of the charm of a handmade memory piece.
Handmade resin creations are a labor intensive process to get the flower into position. Due to the nature of the resin making process tiny air bubbles usually occur.
Each item in my shop is made by hand and not a machine so tiny bubbles, bumps, little gaps, yellowing issues, surface Imperfections,and slight imperfections are part of the unique characteristics of the resin creations! The back or bottom side might be slightly bumpy,uneven due to a natural heating process in a resin and drying.
The front and back sides are more glossy,clear than sides around ( some kind of frosty effect).
Cancellation and Returns on this listing will incur a 30% restocking fee in first 8 hours after you order it.After that no returns and cancellations on this listing because it is a custom order.
Eventually the white roses in your bouquet, corsage or floral arrangement will begin to turn brown, a natural occurrence as the blossom starts to fade. While this happens to all roses, the browning is more evident in white roses, as there is no color to conceal the evidence of the transformation. White flowers tend to yellow as they dry, roses are no exception.Another thing to remember is to dry them before they get too old. The longer the flower has been picked the more chance there is for it to turn brown.The paperweight has slight imperfections, this is because it is handmade and everything is done by hand with handmade by me molds for resin. There may be bubbles, porosities and droplets of resin.The color of your dried flowers determine the color of your finished keepsake. The chemical of the resin can make some of your petals look translucent or even darker.
Some flowers change color as they dry, they may darken or change tone and some flowers just do not dry well. Some light colored flowers keep their color well but some not. Flowers tend to yellow and brown as they dry, roses are no exception.
Another thing to remember is the longer the flower has been picked the more chance there is for it to turn brown.
And sometimes there is a chemical reaction in resin that affects the color of the flowers.
You never know until the product is done.
Cancellation and Returns on the custom orders listings will incur a 30% restocking fee.
For all cancellation requests on orders that have not been shipped yet, there is a $5.00 restocking fee to cover paypal and etsy listing and cancellation fee's, as well as any inconvenience.
By purchasing my products you are agreeing to and acknowledging the following:
- These are handmade products and therefore will not look as though they have been manufactured by a machine.
- Flowers naturally create air bubbles, and resin also naturally has micro bubbles. These bubbles can be within the resin piece or sometimes feature on the surface of the resin, creating small holes. I work very hard to minimise these but this is not always possible.
- During the drying process, flowers can change colour and/or shape. Bruising on flowers can also appear on resin which can occur during postage. Some flowers dry a lot better than others. If your flowers consist of only 1 type of flower and you’re concerned about their suitability then please drop me a message to discuss.

Seller reserves right to deduct original shipping cost, depending on reason for return.
Cancellation and Returns on custom made orders-listings will incur a 30% restocking fee in first 8 hours after you ordered it.After that no returns and cancellations on those listings because it is a custom order.Since the resin is a type of plastic, is possible to have a change in color and transparency over time.
